The Evolving House Museum: Art Collectors and Their Residences, Then and Now
Online, The Society for the History of Collecting, 18–19 June 2021

Organized by Margaret Iacono and Esmée Quodbach

House museums are founded for a variety of reasons, from preserving architecturally significant structures to safeguarding the former homes of historically or culturally noteworthy men and women and their legacies. In other cases esteemed art collectors, such as Henry Clay Frick or Albert C. Barnes, established museums in their former residences to house their collections in perpetuity rather than donating them to preexisting institutions. While many successful examples like the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum continue to thrive, other lesser-known house museums do not attract enough support to remain operational. House museums, it seems, must evolve in order to remain relevant and to continue to attract visitors.

This conference explores a variety of themes relating to art collectors as founders of house museums. Among these are discussions about the motivates that encouraged collectors to establish private house museums instead of donating their collections to preexisting institutions; how collectors’ original intention have manifested themselves in their museums; how house museums’ collections or buildings have evolved over time; and how museums have reinterpreted their collections to remain relevant to contemporary and diverse audiences. Other issues concern how major historic events like the 2008 financial crisis or the recent COVID-19 pandemic have impacted house museums. To attend the event, please register at events@societyhistorycollecting.org.

All times are given in Eastern Daylight Time (EDT)

La Storie dell’Arte Illustrata e la Stampa di Traduzione, 18 e 19 Secolo
Online, Università di Chieti Gabriele d’Annunzio, Chieti, 10–11 June 2021

La storia dell’arte illustrata e la stampa di traduzione tra XVIII e XIX secolo

«Un coup d’oeil sur l’objet ou sur sa représentation en dit plus qu’une page de discours». Così scrive Diderot nel 1751 nell’Encyclopédie, introducendo un concetto rivoluzionario nella metodologia storico-artistica, che dalla descrizione letteraria passava all’analisi dei monumenti attraverso la loro riproduzione o supposta «replica». Nel XVIII secolo si assiste infatti alla «difficile nascita del libro d’arte» (F. Haskell) che segnerà un punto di non ritorno nella storiografia artistica. Prima dell’avvento della fotografia, infatti, è la stampa di traduzione, spesso al semplice contorno lineare ed eseguita rigorosamente al cospetto dell’opera, a essere la protagonista indiscussa della nuova storia dell’arte.

La cattedra di “Storia della Critica d’arte” del Dipartimento di Lettere, Arti e Scienze Sociali dell’Università degli Studi di Chieti-Pescara “G. D’Annunzio” organizza un convegno internazionale di studi dedicato a quel particolare momento aureo della stampa di traduzione come parte integrante della produzione storico-artistica tra XVIII e XIX secolo, indagandone i vari aspetti metodologici e i molteplici apporti nazionali e internazionali.

Le giornate di studio si svolgeranno in modalità online, sulla piattaforma Microsoft Teams. Per partecipare e registrarsi inviare una mail a lastoriadellarteillustrata@gmail.com. Si rilasciano attestati di frequenza su richiesta.

The Art of the Dealer: Selling Antique Ceramics, 1850 to 2000
Online, 12–13 June 2021

The French Porcelain Society is delighted to announce a two-day webinar on selling antique ceramics in the pre-digital age from 1850 to 2000.

The first day will focus on the dealer in the long nineteenth century, emerging from his chrysalis as a seller of ‘curiosities’ and ‘Old Sèvres porcelain’ to modern scholar-dealer, trading on an international stage, selling to museums through antiques fairs, themed exhibitions, lectures, specialist monographs, and catalogues devoted to ceramics. Papers will consider the Parisian dealer Beurdeley, the furnishing of J. Pierpont Morgan’s London home and the dealers who supplied him, and the rising market for oriental ceramics popularised by Edgar Gorer.

On day two, speakers will consider the legacy and change that characterised porcelain dealing in the twentieth century with papers on Marjorie Merriweather Post and French & Company in the United States, the activities of Hanns Weinberg in the 1950s for the Antique Porcelain Company, and finally Robert Williams at Winifred Williams Antiques. Each day will conclude with a panel discussion.

Zoom link for both days on our website soon. The full programme, with abstracts, is available here. Registration in advance is required. This symposium is free and open to all, but donations (here) are appreciated.

The programme is made possible with the generous support of Richard Baron Cohen.

All times are BST/UK

Online Conference | Finding Shakespeare in the Royal Collection

Posted in conferences (to attend), online learning by Editor on June 2, 2021

Begun in September 2018, ‘Shakespeare in the Royal Collection’ is a three-year AHRC funded project, focusing primarily on the period 1714–1945. From the project website:

Finding Shakespeare in the Royal Collection
Online, 17–19 June 2021

The Royal Collection contains Shakespeare-related items collected by generations of British monarchs, stretching back as far as Charles I, though principally concentrated in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. Including paintings, rare books, prints, watercolours, furniture, decorative objects, and photographs, these items tell a fascinating and overlapping set of stories about Shakespeare’s afterlife, the history of collecting, the histories of royalty and empire, and the histories of elite and popular culture. This conference brings together an international group of experts from fields including Shakespeare studies, history of art, collection studies, Romantic literature, and royal history.

Participants are invited to attend live online panels, or to view recorded panels for a limited time afterwards. We have speakers from Singapore to Texas, and the panels are timed across the day to maximise the possibility of attendance worldwide. A full conference programme, including abstracts and speaker bios, can be downloaded here.

From the Sächsischen Akademie der Wissenschaften zu Leipzig:

Friedrich Christian von Sachsen (1722–1763): Thronfolger und Förderer der Künste
Online, Saxon Academy of Sciences in Leipzig, 3-5 June 2021

Organized by Susanne Müller-Bechtel

Pierre Subleyras, Portrait of Friedrich Christian von Sachsen (Gemäldegalerie Alte Meister, Staatliche Kunstsammlungen Dresden, Foto: Elke Estel/ Hans-Peter Klut).

Vom 3. bis 5. Juni 2021 findet an der Sächsischen Akademie der Wissenschaften zu Leipzig die internationale Tagung Friedrich Christian von Sachsen (1722–1763): Thronfolger und Förderer der Künste statt. Sie wird ausgerichtet von Dr. phil. habil. Susanne Müller-Bechtel, Mitglied des Jungen Forums der Akademie, in Kooperation mit der Strukturbezogenen Kommission „Kunstgeschichte Mitteldeutschlands“ und dem Institut für Kunst- und Musikwissenschaft der TU Dresden. Die Tagung findet als virtuelle Veranstaltung statt.

Intention der Tagung ist die Erarbeitung eines aktuellen und methodisch avancierten Kenntnisstands zum kulturellen Wirken Friedrich Christians und seines Umfelds, nicht nur am Hof in Dresden. Damit sollen zudem in mikrohistorischer Perspektive konkrete Ergebnisse zur Rolle der Künste für Thronfolger zusammengetragen werden — eine wichtige Grundlage für weitere Forschungen zum dynastischen Nachwuchs und seiner Bedeutung für Geschichte und Kultur. Außerdem bietet die Tagung methodisch zahlreiche Ansatzpunkte für die Bewältigung künftiger kunsthistorischer Forschungsfragen an den Schnittstellen zwischen Biographie, Netzwerk und kulturellen Objekten.

Opening Up! Collection Centre Strategies
Online, SBMK and Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen, 28 May 2021

As a museum professional, how often have you invited a visitor into your museum’s storage facility? Probably never. As a museum visitor, how often have you thought, “I’d really like to see the works in storage?” Undoubtedly very often. Museum storage facilities have traditionally been invisible and inaccessible to the public, usually housed in anonymous warehouses outside the city or in cellars beneath the museum’s building. But there have been changes in recent years.

An iconic example is the new Depot Boijmans Van Beuningen in Rotterdam, which will open in the autumn of 2021. This storage facility will be fully accessible to the public and occupies a prominent position, right next to the museum. The Netherlands is not alone in developing new ideas about preserving collections and opening them up to the public. The Foundation for the Conservation of Contemporary Art (SBMK) and Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen have organised the online event Opening Up! Collection Centre Strategies about interesting international developments in the field of museum storage.

An international panel of six speakers will share their experiences of combining collection care with public access within their storage facility. How did they conceive and design the building? To what extent is it publicly accessible? How do they guarantee the safety of the collections? And how do they approach their visitors? The symposium will conclude with a round-table discussion with all speakers. As a participant, you will be actively involved in the online event: there will be lots of time for questions and comments from the international audience. The event will have a strong visual component with videos of the buildings’ architecture and internal layouts.

Participation costs €25 (€12.50 for students). You can register via the online form here. For the student registration rate, please also send a copy of your student card to aanmelden@sbmk.nl; otherwise the registration will not apply. The symposium is free for a number of museum employees who pay an annual contribution to the SBMK.

Online, 22–23 May 2021

Following the successful conferences run by the Georgian Group in previous years on Women and Architecture, on The Architecture of James Gibbs, and on The Work of the Adam Brothers, our symposium for 2021 will highlight changing perspectives and new research on the architecture of London undertaken since the publication of the latest edition of Sir John Summerson’s Georgian London (1988, reissued 2003). A series of short papers by both established and younger scholars will cover aspects of housing and estate development, public and commercial architecture, places of entertainment, and related topics.

This year’s symposium will take place online over Saturday 22nd and Sunday 23rd May. Joining details for the symposium will be sent to ticket holders on Friday 21st May. Tickets are £25; students can purchase a discounted ticket (£15) by clicking here.

Online Conference | Sensory Experience in 18th-Century Art Exhibitions

Posted in conferences (to attend), online learning by Editor on May 13, 2021

From the conference programme:

The Sensory Experience in 18th-Century Art Exhibitions: From Emotion to Sensation
L’expérience sensorielle dans les expositions d’art au XVIIIe siècle
Online, 10–11 June 2021

Organized by Gaëtane Maës, Isabelle Pichet, and Dorit Kluge

Registration due by 4 June 2021

The conference The Sensory Experience in 18th Century Art Exhibitions is the final part of a research project funded by the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada (2018–2020) and led by Isabelle Pichet (UQTR, Canada), Gaëtane Maës (University of Lille, France) and Dorit Kluge (VICTORIA International University, Germany) on the question of the sensory body. The aim of the project is to define the way in which the experience of the visitor’s sensory body is shaped during the visit of temporary art exhibitions at a time when these are emerging and establishing themselves in Europe as a new social practice. This knowledge should provide a better understanding of the trajectory and inherent sensory experiences of museum and gallery visitors through the centuries up to the present day.

The 18th century, in fact, saw the birth of art exhibitions, which were part of a new field of social activities that the European population was able to enjoy from the 1730s onwards. For visitors, attending these exhibitions became a new and unique experience that challenged each of their senses. This simple observation leads us to the research fields on senses and sensibility in which the colloquium is a new research path for the history of art exhibitions in the 18th century.

Conceived as a laboratory for exchange, the conference will bring together participants from three continents and diverse backgrounds. It will be organised around two sessions: the first one initially planned at the Louvre-Lens museum will take place on 10–11 June 2021 in total distance mode via Zoom, and the second one will take place at the Vivant-Denon centre of the Louvre museum in Paris on 18–19 November 2021. The first session will focus on the experience of the work of art, from emotion to sensation, while the second will examine the question of the experience of the visit, from spectator to critic.

Registration is mandatory before 4th June 2021: irhis-recherche@univ-lille.fr.

Online Workshop | Viewing Topography Across the Globe, Indigeneity

Posted in conferences (to attend), online learning by Editor on May 11, 2021

From The Lewis Walpole Library:

Viewing Topography Across the Globe Series, Workshop II: Indigeneity
Online, The Lewis Walpole Library, 13–14 May 2021

Organized by Cynthia Roman and Holly Schaffer

Topography, from topos, is the practice of describing place through language, the features of the land, the inhabitants, and the accumulation of history. Specific to locality and the perspective of the person delineating, describing, or collecting materials, topography counters the worldliness of geography while also offering a potential tool to multiply singular approaches.

In this second workshop in the series Viewing Topography Across the Globe, we will consider approaches to place from Indigenous and European perspectives and interrogate the frame of ‘topography’ in global contexts (the first workshop was held at Brown on 11 December 2019). In two half-day virtual sessions, we will focus on topographical practices in the Americas as well as South and Southeast Asia and the Pacific Ocean as well as how the materials of art-making both locate and disrupt notions of place. We will hear from artists and academics, work with colonial-era paintings, Indigenous objects, mapping, and literature, and consider Indigenous pedagogy.

The workshop, which will take place via Zoom, has been organized by Cynthia Roman (The Lewis Walpole Library, Yale University) and Holly Schaffer (Brown University). Details, including abstracts for each talk, are available as a PDF file here. Please note that registration is required for each day’s sessions (links are available below).
